The Fergusons in hot water for recycling artists and stroy-line
South Africans have called out The Fergusons, Shona and Connie for refusing to open the industry for new and upcoming actors.
It was reported that they will premiere a new drama titled King of Joburg in December on Netflix.
The upcoming series stars Shona, Zolisa Xaluva, Tsholo Matshaba and Connie Ferguson.
It appears that Mzansi Twitter ain’t pleased with the act of re-using same artists used on other TV shows produced by the couple’s company.
Taking to Twitter, users dragged them till their name popped on the trend list.
Though, there were few defenders.
Please look for actors that are young and hungry. Find new scriptwriters and then take it from there I swear you will have another hit show.

Yes we are tired of seeing the same faces but the Fergusons are definitely contributing to the growth of the industry. Them being on Netflix is a big move. Onwards and upwards

I wish The Fergusons can take young and fresh actors. I’m tired of seeing old and same actors.

You know you can make your production company and create jobs for black people “open up the industry.”
